This is a photo from man name Elijah McColl who was protecting in the middle east for the right of Palestinian. He also wearing our flag. I have ask him why was you protecting for and this what he said. I was there in Feburary 2015 in a town called Bil’in (near Ramallah) in the Occupied West Bank (Palestine) which has been protesting weekly against the apartheid wall and settlements taking their land for over 10 years. I was taken there by the Israeli anarchists against the wall who attend every week. I wore the shirt as a sign of solidarity to indigenous movements during the protest. We were dispersed with tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and live bullets during this time, but thankfully no one was hurt at this protest.

If you what to know more the info about Bil’in, the film Five Broken Cameras follows one of the men in the village as he filmed their struggle against the Israeli apartheid system. I would recommend following Iyad Burnat and Emad Burnat to keep up to date.

Hey guys quick update. Just letting you know the car is fix and we are ready to go to get back into the walk again. But before we start the walk again towards port August way. The team and I have decided today that we should visit one more APY community call MiMili. Mimili community is about 100km west from Marla roadhouse it is where APY women council group is. I have decided that I should see the APY women council group and have a meeting with them before I head south.

I have had meeting none stop with a lot of man group in community on this walk and had meeting with some of the women group. But this is a time where I can set down and listing and understand the APY elderly women council group from the central desert on what they want for they people and understand what is need done in APY community in the central desert. It is also about asking the APY women council group from the central desert to get support for the walk. I be having a meeting Tomorrow with APY women council group and Elders in MIMIli community.

The Mimili Community, the car gets a good reception, with Clinton talking to the Community people. The sun set and the moon rise is on top of rock hills around the Community.

Day 123: 7.30pm

The one think I have notest out in community is the way how my people look after the wildlife and do what best to help save animals like horse, dingo and other animal you can name in Australia. We as a people of the land who been living here for 100,000 years love taking care of it and know what need to be done to help the land and wildlife it self.

PS this baby horse was all a long out in the Bush not far from the community. So the women group got together and when out to save this baby horse and do what best to help other wild life who need help out in the desert area.

Day 121: 12pm

[Admin Gee] Great article on Croaky by Melissa Sweet mentioning Clinton:

“Think of the courage shown by individuals like Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man, who is making a long walk for justice from Perth to Canberra, protesting about the closure of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, amongst other things.

As I read about his journey to date – at his website and ABC – I imagined, what if…

…what if other people, in other places and other countries, followed in his footsteps? What if Clinton’s long walk was just the beginning of many other such transformative journeys?

There is nothing like a long walk for bringing clarity to confused thoughts and agendas, and for connecting us with what matters most.”

Thanks Melissa!


Day 121: 4pm

Hey guys quick update just letting you know we just reach Marla roadhouse about 160km from the boarder of Northern Territory the first road house we got to in South Australia.

Wake up this morning watching the news how the weather like for today. The weather in Queensland is 38 dragees all ready at 7:00am.I like well I been walking no stop thought this summer heat and the weather it self is just warming up. It been not stop heat every sin we walk into south Australia. So there for the team and i going to be walking at night and chill all day so we don’t get sun burn in the day time.

We going to stay a other night in Marla roadhouse because the car is not fix. We a going back out to the community to continued working on the car until it finish. Than start getting back into the walk again and make our way south towards port August.


Day 122: 4pm

It been a very busy day today everyone was working hard on the car and the trailer to get think done and ready to head south. The new tyres are on, widow is fix and the rake on the trailer is fix. The only think left now is to fix the water pump in the engine. Once the water pump is fix than we can get back into the walking heading towards port August way. I feel good doing a good day of working hard. Now it time to relax and have something to eat and have a beer after hard day of working.


Day 122: 5.30pm

Half way there still got another 2, 530km* to go to reach the end of this journey I when on. This journey I went on with Garry and Noonie well always be with me when I finish it and for the days of my life until I get old. I know people have being waiting on me to start speaking the truth. But I waiting until the right time because I’m enjoying what I’m seeing out here on the land and out in the bush because I’m with my ancients and my people learning and understand what need to people done for my people and for the wildlife. Port August is where I well speak and how I’m going to move this country forward.

This walk I’m on is more than me it is about all of us and it about how we can make this right. I have walk and walk on this land within my ancient foot steps and seen thought they eyes how they live of the land and how they live free for over 100,0000 until Western came here and change our way of life. Now I understand why my ancient showing me thought the spirit fire to walk a cross the country. When I was on heirisson island in Perth fighting to stop community to be closure down and for the homeless to get home. My ancient wanted me to do this because to end the sufficient, pain and save my culture from dieing out and bring this country together.

This country is ready to make it right because the people out there on this land we share and my people wanted change but didn’t know how to bring us together and have being yelling for it. But thought this walk has made it happen, there all different culture people in this country and around the world watching this walk. This walk was never about me, it about bring us together and putting our difference to the side because we all wanted the same think and that is to live happen, free and make the world a better place.

Day 115: 8.30am

Hey guys quick update. We just reach the last roadhouse In northern territory. We going to rest up over night at the last roadhouse in the northern territory before we cross over the boarder to South Australia. South Australia boarder from where we are is about 20km down the road. The next place from this roadhouse is about 260km a way with signal. So that mean the team and I well be out of signal for about 6 days before we get hit the first town in south Australia. But in the time we are on the top end of south Australia when we pass over. We be visiting community, who not far from the main road to see the elderly, aboriginal leaders and the kids at they school.

Also see how think being going for the South Australia mob in the top end area. At the road house we are staying we have no signal, but we do have Wi-Fi so I can message people. It look like we will be hitting port August within the end of the months. So when we reach the next town I we’ll be giving the port August mob a call to start getting ready to march with me on the street and march with me for justice. I think port August is going to be where think are going to kick think up for the walk for justice. Also we need to start doing some action on this walk so the corporate government know that we the people of this country had a none and we a standing up for what right.


Day 115: 11am

15823536_1915621005327753_8572815381310542558_nI think I need to be more careful with the piece of the Uluru rock that traditional elder and custodian Reggie Uluru giving me. when I was talking with the spirit of the land asking for help and what need to be done for the walk for justice on Christmas day. That night in Uluru it rain heavy and it never rain heavy in Uluru for over 50 years. It mean the heart land is coming back to life and the spirit of the land must heard my voice and they know justice need to be served.

So next time when I pull out the piece of Uluru to ask the spirit for some help it mute rain heavy some where else where i’m. But i well be asking the spirit of the land to watch over me when I walk thought Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. When I get to Canberra I well pull out the piece of the rock of Uluru and ask the spirit to make it rain heavy in Canberra with a Storm over it. So Parliament house can get flooded out and the corporate government have no choose but to shut down Parliament house and came out to side see us.

But like how i said I need to be more careful with the piece of Uluru because it very powerful and it where all the songline connect and the spirit of the land a traveling with me and are watching over me with this piece of Uluru rock I got.

15894911_1915798018643385_1796307193541157185_nYou know what I feeling that proud of my self thinking about how far I walk from Perth all the way right in the middle of Australia thought summer, a heart wave and rain Storm. No one on this earth well never forget the name Clinton Pryor in the century to come. A first nation man who walk a cross a hole country for justice and walk be on Ghandi and Dr King walk for justice.

Walking in the foot step of my old people seen traditional time and may be the last traditional man to walk a cross on my ancient land but I hope I not the last to walk a cross.

The elders have told me I well make the history book and my name well live on when I pass away. The world well know that I well be the first person in humans history to walk across a hole country for justice when I finish the walk in Canberra. Glory, honor, respect and most of all my name well live thought the century to come when i’m gone from this earth because what I did in this century of time of age for my people, for my culture, for my ancient land, for the wild life and most for all bring this country together in harmony.

I will not give up or let them win. I going to keep going until my people have happiness and our culture survived. This government has done nothing, but destroy the way how my people have live for 100,000 year sing our dream time began and taking everything away from us and made us live in pain and hurt. My culture and my ancient land is slowly dieing out and I need to do something to save it. A None is a none and it time for justice to be served. The weapon of the truth well lead me on this path to served justice, to the road of freedom for my people, my culture, my ancient land to survived so it can live on and also bring this country together as one to live together in harmony.

Day 113: 12pm

15826886_1914780775411776_9193044095285843309_nI remember day I was born in this world until now. This a photo of me when I stood on Matargarup Heirission Island in Perth for the homeless and the forced closure of community in Western Australia. It stood on a island for 16 month to make a stand and for change hoping there more to life that what it is now and how the way my people in this country are being treated by this corporate government same with ever one else and how change need to come and it has come forward. I stood with family and Friend who believed in it and still now they believed in it. We have a Chance of winning this fight against this corporate government. But it up to you guys who following me and watching me.

The question i’m asking is that are we going to just let them do what ever they like this corporate government or are you going start making a stand for what you believed in and start sharing my picture and tell people it time justice need to be served and that this corporate government need to leave Australia. So there can be cultural government set in place where it is for the people, by the people and in control by the people. We can Do this but I need you guys to start stepping it up now and help me make this walk for justice bigger so the future generation can look back at us and say because our grand parent where have a better life style. Now well you guys start stepping it up or are you going let me and my team stand alone for justice for every one in Canberra.

If we what a cultural government in place said of a corporate government for multi billion air we need to work together and bring unity come forward. Unity is the only way to go forward and a way to make this country great. We need to also look after the wild life who live on the land because the world dose not just below to humans. But all who was created from the beginning of life. I know it can be done and I know you know it can be done. But first we need to put our difference to the side and start working together if there going to be any change of making this country great for our child future. But most of all every person who live here with us most respect my people land,our cultural believed and our secret site where we do law. I have see the future that this country can become better than what it is now.
